Nintendo Switch OLED
The Nintendo Switch (OLED Model) is the third model in the Nintendo Switch line. It was launched worldwide on October 8, 2021,
The OLED model’s main new feature is the 7-inch OLED screen. The screen is larger than the original model, with reduced bezels. The OLED screen producing higher quality than the standard LCD display with darker blacks and brighter whites. Beyond the screen, the OLED model has improved speakers, a new adjustable stand and more built-in memory at 64GB. The stand is much wider than the original model, covering the width of the Switch console and can be adjusted to a multitude of angles. The console itself is a bit larger than the original model.
The OLED Model comes with a revised dock, that is available separately. The dock is a bit larger and deeper than the original. It substitutes the USB port inside the dock with a LAN port. The LAN wire is sold separately.
I had the opportunity to trade in my original model of the switch in order to get this upgraded model. I was originally going to hold on to my OG switch as it had not been patched by Nintendo, meaning that it was possible to mod. However I had not modded it since getting it, so in all likeliness I would never would have modded it. So I decided to trade up. I only had £42.50 left to pay for the upgrade. The advantage of the OLED model to me was huge, as I never play my switch docked I would really see the benifit of a newer improved screen.
